Due Diligence
Due Diligence is a process through which a potential acquirer evaluates a target firm for acquisition. In the field of mergers and acquisitions, there is nothing more important than undertaking a proper program of due diligence on the target to be acquired, so that the purchaser can identify any “skeletons in the cupboard” before committing to the transaction. Pre-lending reviews are carried out, generally at the request of the proposed financier, for the purpose of enabling a risk assessment to be completed and to conduct an independent review of the future viability of the business.
